BRAIN DAMAGE AND REPAIR
22-26 July 2013, Santander (Spain)
This Summer School is devoted to neurodegenerative diseases and spinal cord trauma, their pathogenesis and to the actual development of drugs and strategies for neuroreparation and neuroprotection of the damaged brain. Expert scientists from the EU and the USA will deliver their lectures in the frontier of knowledge. Also young PhD or postdoctoral students attending the School will present their experimental own results.
Fellowships for young investigators are available in UIMP's web as well as from Teófilo Hernando's Foundation (Please see www.ifth.es)
International Workshop on Organic Matter Spectroscopy 2013 (WOMS 2013)
16-19 July 2013, La Garde, France
WOMS 2013 invites new contributions about the characterization of DOM in marine and inland waters using spectroscopic techniques, particularly fluorescence spectroscopy, coupled with advanced signal and image processing tools, among which improved data analysis, detection, clustering, separation, reconstruction, tracking and real-time monitoring.
The purpose of WOMS 2013 is to present new and effective approaches in the area of fluorescence spectroscopy for the analysis of environmental data. It is also to be a meeting place for both the signal processing community and the environmental organic matter community in order to strengthen their dialogue and interaction towards a mutual scientific topic.
i-Tour Final Conference - Improving Personal Mobility for Urban Environments: Applications and Perspectives
16 July 2013, Brussels, Belgium
The Final i-Tour Conference is intended to present highlights on the results achieved during the course of the i-Tour project as well as an insight about the latest innovations and projects in the field of Intelligent Transport Information Systems applied not only on public transports but also on several different environments. The event is targeted to academics, transportation and IT service providers, transportation companies and general public.
Sustainable Intelligent Manufacturing
26-29 June 2013, Lisbon
The International Conference on Sustainable Intelligent Manufacturing aims at providing a major international forum for academics, researchers and industrial partners, from different backgrounds like engineering, architecture, design and economics, to exchange ideas in the field of sustainable intelligent manufacturing and related topics, to foster networking and collaboration among participants advancing knowledge and identifying major trends in the field.
Model cities are moving forward towards novel ecosystems, combining environmental, social and economic issues in more inclusive and integrated frameworks.
Sustainable intelligent manufacturing is regarded as a manufacturing paradigm for the 21st century, towards the next generation of manufacturing and processing technologies.
New business opportunities are emerging as sustainability has become a key concern for government policies, businesses and general public.
ENSEA Networking Event
25 June 2013, Brussels
To reach the “20-20-20” climate goals, Europe is increasingly generating renewable energy through technologies such as solar panels and wind turbines. Renewable resources are, however, dependent on weather patterns and therefore generate variable amounts of power over time. In order to provide secure energy systems which delivers energy when we need it, renewables have to be used in conjunction with ‘back up’ power sources, which can ramp up generation quickly to meet peak demands, while managing demand by using smart grids and by hydro-based balancing services. Goal of the ENSEA Networking Event is to introduce the project to an European audience, exchange with other Regions of Knowledge (energy) projects and to connect to other European funds.
